 Further Then Ever

Did you know the moon is further from us than it has ever been? Our astronomical friend slows the rotation of our planet by 1.5 milliseconds per century. This energy makes the moon propel itself around 5 centimeters away from us each year. Researchers believe that 4.5 million years ago this satellite was actually at a distance of 22,530 kilometers away from Earth. Today, the distance is that of 450,000 kilometers away from us.
